Paper Size A4 to Letter at runtime.

Paper Size A4 to Letter at runtime.

Paper Size A4 to Letter at runtime.

I have a C6.1 ABC app with reports designed for the 'A4' paper size (default). Prior to printing a report I would like to be able to allow a user to select the 'Letter' paper size. I thought I might just use a GLO:Variable to define which size the report is to be.

I appreciate I need to use SETTARGET(Report)and SETTARGET but I am unsure of the code to put inbetween and the embed point to use?

Can this be done successfully?

Any idea's and/or sample code would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Paper Size A4 to Letter at runtime.

I omitted to mention... or would I be better off having both an A4 and Letter size of the same report within the app and have them conditionally called?
